Six young Black entrepreneurs set up shop Saturday for the Buy Black Expo: Youth Edition in north Minneapolis.

The vendors ranged in age from 10 to 17, selling clothing, accessories jewelry and more.

Organizers say it was a way to give kids an opportunity to connect with the community.

"Just to have a space where it's community, where it's people who look like you, where you can just feel comfortable seeing your things, that definitely makes all the difference," expo organizer Jayda Pounds said.
